Why can't retailers keep a decent game section?

How much are these retailers getting paid to poorly implement the marketing for Sony, MS, and Nintendo? Does anyone have a local discount retailer that has a fully-functioning game demo area? A Sarcastic Gamer reader sent in an embarrassing photo of the RRoD on the demo unit at his local Target store, prompting the author to ask a question that's been on the minds of gamers for some time.

From the article: "It seems to me that MS, Nintendo, and Sony ought to be out there ensuring that their products are being shown in a manner that's consistent with the image they want to portray. They're paying BIG MONEY for placement in these stores, and while that's a lot to keep up with, its obvious that things aren't getting implemented correctly."

Hey dumbass, the article doesn't say that it's the store's fault, it criticizes the store for not replacing it.

PS3 was frozen at some sort of computer-looking screen. Fatal error or something like that.... It was wierd. Stayed like that for a few days then it got turned off and has stayed that way for 2 months now, THROUGH the holiday shopping season. how ridiculous is that.
